This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

I really like retro, especially in furnitures, art and movies. I think retro is extremely cool, funny and in many cases timeless. Plus some easy-home 'inventions' from the 60's still make me smile.

I had this concept in mind for 50's/60/s inspired shops for the sims. I cannot mesh so I decided to recolour some posters suitable for various business and in retro style. I think they can be used everywhere from restaurants, shops, fast foods to funky kitchens.
It was very hard to choose few favourites as they all are interesting. Anyway, I hope you like what I've picked.

This set contains 39 different posters and paintings. They are all Maxis mesh recolours of C Stroke painting (10 files), Engineered Angst poster (11 files) and Surfing The Universe poster (18 files).
Each zip is labelled by painting type and I also included RetroShopAll zip which contains all files.
